Tell me more:
The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey is the first Australian whiskey that is legally labelled as ‘Straight’, due to the strict distillation and maturation process required and is typical of American whiskeys.
Made using 100% Australian grown unmalted rye from a single farm in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia, one of the driest regions of the driest country in the world, The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey is full of the character from the soil from which it originated.
The whiskey is double distilled and then aged for at least two years in charred, new American oak barrels in Melbourne, Australia. Our high-quality barrels are sourced from a cooperage in Kentucky, USA, who obtain the oak from a single forest. They are heavily toasted with varying char levels – a formula we developed after years of trialling different combinations – resulting in a medium bodied whiskey that perfectly balances the rye spice and vanilla oak influence.
The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey embodies the characteristics of traditional rye whiskey while having a nuance that is distinctly Australian.
About The Gospel:
Established in 2019, The Gospel is a dedicated rye whiskey distillery, sourcing their rye grain from a single farm in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia, one of the driest regions in the driest country in the world.
Set in the backstreets of Melbourne’s eclectic Brunswick neighbourhood, founders Ben and Andrew designed and built a distillery big enough to match their dreams, but small enough to remain hands-on where it matters.
Using Australia’s arid grain-growing conditions and Melbourne’s extreme climate to their advantage, they produce a spirit with balanced oak influence and pronounced cereal character. It embodies the characteristics of traditional rye with a nuance that is distinctly Australian.
